Family Fun at Disney

On our Disney trip, we stayed in the Yacht Club hotel (we chose this one because Matt's conference - our excuse for the trip - was being held there) which is on the Disney property. We were walking distance to Epcot and the Boardwalk so we had lots of dining options. The pool was amazing and had a sandy bottom! They had big areas of sand where the kids could dig and build sandcastles. The sand areas were zero entry into a large, shallow pool. They also had a big water slide that landed in a larger pool with a whirlpool, waterfalls, bridges, etc. We could have spent the whole week just playing in the pool.

Because we were staying in a Disney hotel, they gave us a complimentary copy of the Disney magazine Family Fun. While it isn't specifically an eco-friendly magazine, there were a ton of craft ideas and homemade fun. I'm sure I'll be posting about some of them later this winter when we spend more time indoors doing crafty things.

Family Fun magazine is currently looking for Green Tips from families. If your tip is chosen for publication, you will receive $25. Go to the submission page on their website to enter your green tip. Deadline is Nov 30th.

Sounds like fun. We're going out there in 3 weeks.

I won't be telling my daughter about that pool though, or we'll never get to see the parks.
